Open or Closed?

This is kind of a weird topic, but I just have to see if I am the only one out there with this going on in my house...
When you go to the bathroom at home do you leave the door open or closed?

This might seem like a weird question, but here is the situation: When I go to the bathroom I close the door, but I don't fully close it so the door clicks or anything, I just swing it closed so it is still open a crack. Mainly because I don't feel like its a big deal because I know Josh won't come in, and of course I don't want to pee with it wide open either.

So here is where it gets weird (in my mind). When Josh goes to the bathroom he fully closes the door AND locks it. I can't help it, but this bugs me, I feel like he doesn't trust me or something haha. He says it is out of habit, and recently he has finally stopped locking the door, but he still HAS to have it closed all the way.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not standing outside the bathroom trying to peek in through the crack in the door or anything, but in such a small apartment you can tell when someone closes the door all of the way and locks it or not.

And I'm not asking for him to pee with the door open - that's not my goal at all, I'm just saying... really? After 6 years you still aren't comfortable enough to pee with the door not locked down like a Hurricane Bunker??

Tell me if I am being Crazy.

Sometimes guys have weird little quirks during bathroom time. John and I always close the door (no locking) but for a long time he used to have the faucet turned on so I couldn't hear him tinkle.

I think it's much better to do bathroom time with the door shut and locked than doing it in front of you.

omg this is too funny! i am one of those that totally leaves the door WIDE OPEN! i grew up in house of all girls (sorry dad) so we always just left the door open - so we could continue talking :) but i dont even think either of us ever lock the door. so thats a little different - but to each their own.

LOVE the topic haha! Door wide open here!

Well, you know it depends on what I am doing! HA! With an almost 10 year old boy in the house, I am having to remind myself to close the door! If I am just peeing real quick, then I just leave it open if no one is around.

Heather said...

I can't believe I just shared that information with you! :)

Annie said...

i guess for us it just depends, i think i do something different everytime!
sometimes when i'm home alone i shut the door and then think why did i do that, ha!
if B and i are talking we will leave the door open.

Me and Big Man go to the bathroom with the door open or cracked.
Were dumb and even make stupid sounds at each other when the other is going to the bathroom...were wayyyy to comfortable with each other.

I leave the door open for somethings and close for others. Hubby does the same. Heck, I don't care if he is in the room for somethings.

The door locking would weird me out.

Erin said...

Haha, too funny:) Like Casey, door open for certain things, but closed for others!! David closes and locks the door for #2...the locking definitely weirds me out!!! (I think he would die if he knew I told you that....so....shhhhh!)

haha, ok well when I'm home alone I don't even care about the door. Now when Matt is there, I close the door and make sure it clicks. Matt locks the door...I thought it was weird at first but I just gave up lol

Jon and Steph said...

I leave the door open sometimes and I close it sometimes! I guess it just depends on how I feel that day ;)

But I never lock the door. Jon doesn't either.

You know, guys can be weird like that. My husband is totally comfortable taking a wizz in front of me but when it comes to Ahem, other business, the door is shut, locked, and the water is turned on (in his defense I do it too because we don't have a fan). Men can take forever to get comfortable, especially when it comes to something they feel can hurt their manly pride.

Maybe it is just a habit of locking the door. I shut the door all the time because I like that moment of time as a break...kids will do that too you. I love them...and they are great..but I enjoy those moments to myself also. :)
